I hear Reggie Miller say "I believe the defender slid in there in time"

I see "Arizona defender's leg sliding in the lane as he gets in the way of the OSU player"

I love me some college basketball in March! Ohio should be happy they're only down by 7, and Maybe they thought they were playing on Friday?

Craft is not only offensively limited. He's a bad offensive decision maker. How do you not get Thomas a touch when he's guarded by a 6'2 guy and is on fire?


March 28th, 2013 at 8:41 PM ^

How does Thomas not touch the ball on that last possession? Atrocious. At least when Burke goes end of half iso he's our best player.

AZ hits one or two fewer 3's and OSU hits a few more then they have the lead.  I don't think AZ can play better, but OSU definitely can.  If they play up to potential in the 2nd half they'll beat AZ  by 10 or  more.

B1G loyalty be damned.  There's not a single bone in my body that wants to see Ohio win.  Not a one.

If this were a blind date, I'd be walking out before dinner even starts.  That's how much I don't want to even try.

I'm starting to want to see the other B1G teams win if only because the Big Ten is being so hyped that I will be unable to read sports articles for the next year because everyone will flip back again and they'll talk about how overrated the Big Ten is. It benefits us ever so slightly to have the conference perceived as Mega Awesome

OTOH, I could see MSU or OSU sad. So it's kind of win-win

would be fortunate if Marquette wins and then they beat the 'Cuse cause I feel like Miami's bigs would give them a harder time.

Right now it's looking damn good that could happen


March 28th, 2013 at 8:48 PM ^

No matter what happens, this game is full of win.

1. OSU wins and makes the BIG look good. Then we can potentially beat OSU for the NC.

2.  AZ wins and OSU LOSES. Then we don't have to be concerned with playing a team that has proven they can beat us.

Either way, I'm happy.

I do not want want to play OSU for a national title. Yes, we could absolutely win that game, but that is the one basketball game, in every possible scenario of basketball games one could come up with in every situation, that I quite literally could not bare losing.

The butt hurt would never end.

Yea I knew the halftime lead was too small for Arizona. They dominated the first half and have nothing to show for it now. Ohio came out like a bat out of hell in the 2nd half.


March 28th, 2013 at 9:07 PM ^

Would Reggie Johnson have helped Miami tonight, does anyone think? Or were they doomed from the start with a bad matchup in Marquette and/or a bad shooting night?
